America’s Dance Revolution: 1876-1900

Racket, York, Newport, Knickerbocker…after the USA celebrated its centennial in 1876, newly organized and confident American dancing masters began creating distinctly American variations on the standard 19th century dance repertoire. This weekend workshop will cover a mix of notable American couple dances, unusual quadrilles, and lively country dances from the last quarter of the 19th century. Special attention will be given to understanding the commonalities in technique among different dances and developing solid fundamentals.

Classes will be accessible to both beginner and experienced dancers.
